So.. when you click the start menu, and begin typing the name of a folder on the PEN DRIVE, it shows up under results?! Are you ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE the folders it finds are ones on the pendrive and not somewhere else on the computer? This is where a screenshot is helpful.

Unless that screenshot proves this wrong.. those two statements together realllllly make me think there arent any folders on the pendrive, just files..
